Our neighbour, Frank turned 100 on Sunday.
There was a small reception in his honour in the party room Bistro on Friday afternoon. Frank entertained us with a short talk about his life. He was born in British Columbia in 1922 to Japanese immigrants. During WWII his family was interned as they were considered enemy aliens, but Frank eventually was chosen to serve in the Canadian armed forces. He worked in the Ontario civil service after the war and has been a writer for most of his life, still providing a column each month for a Japanese/Canadian publication.
The he credits his wife Betty as the secret of his longevity. She certainly takes good care of him. He blew out the candles on a festive cake and we all toasted him with bubbly. Many more years, Frank!
